New farmers markets good for local area

Dear Editor,

In response to the article, “Eat Fresh and Local,” what a great way to eat healthy. Eating healthy is so important, so it’s exciting to hear that new farmers markets have opened.

The fact that these new markets are all local is even better. Having local markets makes it easy for people to get a healthy choice of foods.

As an intern for the American Heart Association, I have learned so much about the importance of eating healthy.

The American Heart Association does a lot to teach people how to eat healthy, and also provides great ideas for eating healthy through cookbooks that they have.

These new markets open up another great way to eat healthy and live a healthy lifestyle.

Not only is it great to have more options for healthy foods, but these new markets offer something else as well. They offer a fun new shopping experience.

I know I sometimes dread having to go to the grocery store. It’s just not all that fun.

But these new markets offer an outside shopping experience. Ladies especially, we all love a new shopping experience!

It’s a great experience for kids as well. It’s a great way for them to have fun and learn about eating healthy at the same time.
